Using a modified Delphi panel, the author presented a number of goal statements to experienced practitioners and asked them to reflect on the importance of the goals. Through the panel process, practitioners identified five goals as priorities for current technology curriculum. Priority goals included instruction on the social, ethical, and environmental impacts of technology use and developing students as educated consumers of technology.
